In a letter to supporters on Thursday, SPLC President Richard Cohen wrote

Yesterday, Sessions spoke to the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a group that vilifies the LGBT community and promotes discrimination against it in the name of religion. . .

In his speech, Sessions attacked us for calling the ADF what it is – a hate group that would like to push the LGBT community into the closet if not into jail. . .

After he made similar comments last week, we explained in a letter to the attorney general that we identify hate groups in a manner analogous to how the Justice Department defines hate crimes.

This is remarkable – Sessions, the head of the Justice Dept., is attacking the SPLC for applying the same standards to define hate groups that the Justice Dept uses to define hate crimes.

I will be so relieved when this national nightmare finally ends.
